Build a Cookie Monster Robot




About: I build robots to encourage others to do the same. I believe the future is in robotics and playing a part for the future is my passion. Check out my website to see what else I'm up too. :)
Hello everyone!

My newest robot is a little out of my ordinary but still keeps with my robot pet theme. The code has evolved from K@ to K9 to Wall-E and now resides in my Cookie Monster.

Watch the video: You Tube

The code had been modified to give cookie monster a realistic walking motion. The frame that i had modified is a Mike Disc Throwing robot. I used the legs/torso from this robot because it had a walking motion mechanism. The motors were removed and replaced with GWS Modified Servos. The arms are controlled by standard GWS servos, as well as the head.

The circuit is the EZ-B Bluetooth Robot Controller:
The programming is done through EZ-Builder:


Tools Used

  • Dremel or Equivalent Tool
  • Krazy Glue or Equivalent Adhesive
  • Tiny Screws (Saved from taking toy apart)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Zip Ties


He's fuzzy and durable. Makes for a pretty fun kids toy :) Even talks!

    Cool but it looks so hard....I really can't be botherd? But I love the Cookie Monster


    My dad wants me to try to make an autonomous duck that has a long list of functions. Im just getting into robotics and if you could tell me where i could learn to program that would be great. Send me a PM if you have any tips and all help will be apreciated.

    oh well
    could you at least give me some pointers on how to build one. i already have a couple arduinos, so that would be the prefurable, but it doesn't really matter.
    anything would help
